According to ESPN we'll see the debut of former Mongolian amateur star Tugstsogt Nyambayar (0-0) this coming Friday as make his much anticipated professional debut and battles against Gabriel Braxton (2-8, 1) in Ontario, California.
The Mongolian is best known for claiming a silver medal at 2012 Olympic in London, losing out to losing out to Cuban sensation Robeisy Ramírez in the final. He had had also claimed the silver medal at the 2009 World Amateur Championships in Milan, losing out to McWilliams Arroyo in the final.
Although he has been matched "easily" for his debut Nyambayar is expected to be fast tracked to the top. This debut is likely a chance for his team, including trainer Joe Goosen, to see just how good he is in the ring. He's hoping to be moved quickly to world title fights and, from what we've seen of him as an amateur, he has the potential to "set the cat amongst the pigeons" at Bantamweight or Super Bantamweight. If he is to be fast tracked then we suspect this will be his only 4 round bout before he moves on to 6 rounders, if not 8 rounders.
